I still miss Joan. I enjoyed so many slumber parties at her house, with Debbie, Pam, Marsha, Diane, and all the gang, listening to Beatles records over and over and over.

Okay, I'll admit it. I was very, very jealous of Joan (in the illogical way teenagers can be). I thought she was perfect - beautiful, graceful, poised, and smart. I remember thinking that she walked up and down the stairs with perfect posture and innate elegance. We weren't close friends, but I admired her so very much.
